A couple of days ago, Ubisoft launched the 3rd event on Ghost War’s Quick games, called Realistic vs. Sniper duel. An event is a gameplay modifier which drastically change the way this PVP is played. There is a 2 weeks voting period, enough time for us to understand what is happening and what we should vote, taking also into consideration the first two events, also.
What have we learned in the previous events?
The first event took us in an easy-no-hud perspective. If you remember, our intel was a little damaged (missing classes, minimap etc). Places where we have our eyes glued for at least 30% of the game time. The second event taught us how to chill the f**k up and pay more attention around us. 🙂 And at least one of us changed class in order to survive.
I think that a no-hud perspective is a dream for anyone who creates content for, let’s say, Youtube (have you seen Ghosts.Club’s Youtube Channel?). Is this easy to do? I don’t know, but imagine a video edited with 4 video footage sources with no-hood screen. It will be amazing. And I think that 4 good guys that are playing regularly can block a customized preset for their appearance in the game and use costumes or icons, for example.
When I faced for the first time the second event, it was fun. Everybody was running in all directions, you could hear steps all around you, and I was in a killing spree with the Pointman. In half a day, no one was moving, and after some of extraordinary deats I had, I ended up a Diversionist. And guess what, I’m kinda felt in love for it. Still playing a couple of matches every day. And the event ended.
What are the options for the new event?
1. REALISTIC – Marking systems, support classes, supplies, and revives are disabled. Meanwhile, weapons damage will be increased. In other words, support classes will be out. Also Pathfinder and Echelon, and the Assassin will lose his un-markable ability. Perks like HPA, Quick Getaway will be out also. There are only 6 maps, and a lot of other surprises like:
– friendly fire, realistic magazine reload, higher damage
– no recon tower, no supply crates restock, no adrenaline rush
2. SNIPERS DUEL – Clearance restricted to Sniper class and Elimination game mode only. There are four maps: Desert Outpost, Lumber Mill, Quarry and Checkpoint. Good luck. 🙂
Like many of my friends, I am tempted to choose the realistic scenario, but only thinking to that eternity that might take to end a round. 4 snipers on Quarry is no fun even for a Pointman in a blood rush. I see only 2 good opportunities: for teams to test some tactic skills (eg. covering fire during a rush / flank stealth assault), and for individuals to improve their gameplay focus and pistol control.
On the other hand, realistic event is a gold mine. There are so many things missing! We will need to improve our skills in order to survive. Thanks god the rounds lasts only 3 minutes long. 🙂 After this realistic event I think we can remain only with the compass on the screen. Seriously. And shooting drone sport it will become a noob statement, as we will care for the number of our bullets.
The realistic option will offer you at the end of the event the same feeling you have when you change your mountain boots with a pair of Converse, for example. You will master the Quick game’s field after it! 🙂 And don’t look at me! I didn’t voted yet. Somehow, that sniper duel is intriguing me. 🙂
What do you choose, ghost? And why?
PS. Here are some screenshots during the vote.
PPS. The 2nd event vote ended with 51/49. 49 was for a sniper event also.
